Two Keys Matches Headline Round 15

There are two matches which headline round fifteen in the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL League Season, with Augusta Margaret River to host Busselton, while Collie will host South Bunbury on Sunday.

Matches between the Southern neighbours are always close, but this season, both are in the top five, with the Hawks second and the Magpies fourth.

If the home team should be successful they will maintain second place on the ladder and the potential of a home qualifying final or even a week off and a second semi final berth, but a loss will put them in the clutches of Harvey Brunswick Leschenault who are a game behind in third place currently, but with the Lions having a better percentage, and would drop the Hawks to third, assuming the Lions defeat the Boomers.

A win by Busselton will keep them in the hunt or a top three finish, with a superior percentage to the Lions, and at worst solidify fourth place for another week.  A loss by the Magpies will almost certainly see them fall two games behind the Lions, leaving them to fight out the fourth and fifth spots with South Bunbury and Collie Eagles.

Speaking of Collie Eagles and South Bunbury, an elimination final has come four weeks early, as the two teams play in Collie on Sunday, with the loser going to struggle to get back into the five as a result, particularly Collie who have a tough run home, with games against Bunbury and Busselton still to come.  A win will see them depose South Bunbury in the five, who will still have to face Harvey Brunswick Leschenault and Bunbury in the final three rounds.  If South Bunbury win and Busselton lose, the Tigers would move to fourth, such is the closeness of the competition.

In Saturday’s other match, Harvey Bulls host Donnybrook (2.10pm), while on Sunday, Carey Park will play Bunbury at Kelly Park (3.00pm) and Eaton Boomers will host Harvey Brunswick Leschenault at Glen Huon Reserve also at 3.00pm.
